Dubai-based fly­dubai has an­nounced that its op­er­a­tions to Delhi, Kochi and Thiruvanan­thapuram will com- mence next month. The air­line will op­er­ate four weekly flights on Tues­days, Thurs­days, Satur­days and Sun­days to Delhi from June 1 and three weekly flights on Mon­days, Thurs­days and Satur­days to Kochi from June 2 and three weekly flights on Tues­days, Fridays and Sun­day to Thiruvanan­thapuram from June 3. This brings the to­tal num­ber of In­dian cities served by the car­rier to six, in­clud­ing its ex­ist­ing routes - Ahmed­abad, Hy­der­abad and Luc­know.

Ghaith Al Ghaith, Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer of fly­dubai, said: “I would like to take this op­por­tu­nity to thank the au­thor­i­ties for grant­ing us the ap­proval to op­er­ate these flights be­tween Dubai and In­dia. The two na­tions share a lot of his­toric and cul­tural ties and the new flights will in­crease the trade and tourism po­ten­tial while en­abling the In­dian expatri­ate com­mu­nity in the UAE to travel home to visit friends and fam­ily more of­ten.”

fly­dubai has seen strong de­mand for its flights since the start of its op­er­a­tions to In­dia in 2010. The car­rier was set up by the Dubai Govern­ment to of­fer pas­sen­gers con­ve­nient and re­li­able ser­vices and an un­ri­valled on­board ex­pe­ri­ence and cre­ate free flow of trade and tourism in pre­vi­ously un­der­served mar­kets.

Com­ment­ing on the launch of the three new des­ti­na­tions, Sud­hir Sreed­ha­ran, Se­nior Vice Pres­i­dent Commercial (GCC, Sub­con­ti­nent, Africa) for fly­dubai said: “These new flights will give pas­sen­gers from dif­fer­ent re­gions in In­dia di­rect links to Dubai, en­hanc­ing flight con­nec­tiv­ity be­yond the city to GCC coun­tries and to des­ti­na­tions in Africa, Cen­tral Asia, Rus­sia and Europe, most of which have no or very few di­rect links to In­dia.”

fly­dubai will de­ploy Busi­ness Class con­fig­ured air­craft on all three new routes.
